Sergio Busquets: He ended up exhausted and having to be replaced in the final minutes. He endured 70 minutes doing a superb exercise of tempering and control of the rhythm of the game, taking out the ball with precision and always looking for the best solution. However, he tarnished his great game in the last ten minutes, when the physicist could not stand it anymore and was losing balls in high-risk areas.Arturo vidal: The Chilean completed a superlative game, surely the best of this season. Blunt without the ball and precise with the ball, he ate by himself a good part of the Atlético midfielders. He gave a huge pass to Piqué after a free kick from Messi, but the VAR ended up canceling the play. His momentum and claw are non-negotiable. It is impossible for Barcelona to accept that it marches to Milan in winter due to many demands.From Jong: Good game of the Dutchman, despite some loss of intolerable ball in high-risk areas. Superb in driving and when breaking pressure lines. He still needs a little more ambition to look up.Messi: He gave everything to reach the final, but sometimes quality and talent are not enough. He scored a great goal, they annulled another one with almost negligible hands, he gave the assistance of another who also annulled and galvanized the entire Blaugrana attack game. Keep eating apart.Luis Suarez: The charrúa did not score, but he was very close to beating the Oblak goal twice with two shots at goal that answered the Slovenian goal with two portentous interventions. He also had his plus and minus with Oblak in some punctual play within the area.Griezmann: It was more dynamic than on other occasions and combined with more success with its partners in attack. Product of his improvement in the game came his goal, marked head after taking advantage of an Oblak clearance, which obviously did not celebrate. He was close to scoring a couple more goals, but the Slovenian goal is of another level.CHANGES:Rakitic: He left to give oxygen in the midfield after the fuse blackout of Busquets. He held the position of defensive pivot, but it was too late.Ansu Fati: He barely got into action. Net: His first match against Inter in the Champions League raised waves of applause, in the second against Espanyol the first criticisms were already heard, which unfortunately have multiplied in the third against Atlético in the Spanish Super Cup. Hardly an outstanding action to a shot from Morata to Bocajarro, the Brazilian goal had a good part of guilt in the three goals, especially in the first two: in Koke’s he did not stretch his arm enough to a bitten shot and in the second He did not arrive on time and caused a penalty. In the third he came to touch the ball but could not clear it enough. It is clear that Neto is not Ter Stegen, either by charisma or by attitude under the sticks.Sergi Roberto: Reus occupied the right wing with resolution and presence, especially in his incursions into the attack. In defense he had some brand problem, especially when watching his back. He still needs a little more decision to climb up more vertically.Pique: Too bad that a punctual error indicates him as one of the culprits of the elimination. Correa’s third goal came after an unforgivable mistake when clearing a ball, leaving the ball dead so that the Argentine left alone before the goal of Neto. He scored a goal, but the VAR annulled it because Vidal was just a centimeter ahead. His game, if we remove the third goal from the hard drive, was simply perfect.Umtiti: It is not at the level of that French central that revolutionized the defense with its forcefulness and ability to get the ball, but little by little it is getting closer. His great burden in the game is his slowness and his great virtue is that he knows how to anticipate the actions of the forward better than anyone else. If the right knee allows it, it deserves more minutes and continuity.Sunrise: The side served a golden ball in Barcelona’s second goal with a perfect assist to Suarez that ended up finishing off Griezmann. However, his game was encharcado by his stubborn discussions with the rivals at the foot of the field, which ended up unsettling him.
James Blake has been one in every of the nice American rackets on the ATP circuit thus far in the 21st century. The previous tennis participant, who grew to become quantity four in the rating in 2006 and who achieved 10 titles all through his profession, is at the moment nonetheless linked to the world of racket as director of the Miami Masters 1,000, one in every of the assessments that have been suspended resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.Initially on the circuit, Blake sported hair with dreadlocks earlier than his father was present in 2003 to have abdomen most cancers that ended his life a few months later in 2004. In solidarity along with his father, Blake shaved his head to indicate his assist throughout his chemotherapy therapy, and has since stored a shaved head throughout his years on the circuit and after his retirement.This determination had financial repercussions for Blake, as revealed by the ex-tennis participant in his e book Breaking Again, the place he highlights that the reality that he shaved his dreadlocks triggered him to not obtain a juicy sponsorship contract. “I knew that my look was what IMG was thinking about and my hair was partly responsible. After I talked about the concept of shaving Carlos Fleming (his agent) he stated it was a unhealthy concept. He’s negotiating a new contract with Nike and on the lookout for new sponsors however there was one factor in widespread: my hair made cash. Lastly I snatched up and referred to as him. ‘I’ve achieved’. ‘What have you ever achieved what?’ ‘I’ve shaved.’ He stated he would name me later. I spoke to him once more however had already spoken to a journalist to say, ‘When James is shaving, I used to be shedding a million dollars.’ It was a lot of cash, greater than I assumed I’d win in my profession. However the priorities had modified. “ Blake’s profession was initially marked by unimaginable toughness. Six weeks earlier than his father’s dying, he broke his neck after hitting the internet put up throughout that yr’s Rome match. “I received caught in the clay and hit my neck after I fell. They turned me round as a result of I fell face down. I may transfer my fingers, however nonetheless didn’t know if I’d be paralyzed or if I may stroll once more. I assumed, ‘Effectively, if that is the finish of my profession, what do I do subsequent? Will I be capable to train and play baseball with my youngsters once more? Will I see my household once more? “Blake recounted in an interview years later with Folks journal.Blake sustained a fracture to the seventh vertebra with out injury to the nerve. “After the accident I noticed that daily of my life is a present. I may have stopped taking part in tennis at age 24 or I may have been paralyzed. It was a get up name for me. “
Another voice has entered the arena of public discussion on a track and field matter about which there are varied opinions. There has been continuing dialogue surrounding the issue as to how much work is too much, as far as the process of caring for and developing young athletes is concerned. Now coming with a related topic is none other than the world-class sprint coach, the Honourable Glen Mills, OJ, who rescued then shepherded the legend Usain Bolt from the depth of despair to the lofty perch in world sprinting which he now enjoys. This, after the Trelawny-born 2002 World Junior Champion seemed to have stumbled through two global events, the 2004 Athens Olympics and the Helsinki World Championships the following year. Mills’ slant speaks to athletes in their formative years, being asked to compete when hurt. There are those who argue that ‘running hurt’ is naturally accompanying with the sport. The sentiment is extended to suggest that just as a sniffle should not preclude going to work, a niggle can be countenanced while engaging in a sporting activity. That thought may be acceptable in professional exploits at the senior level, but this columnist rejects that view for our young children, as in so doing, it could rob them of a hopefully rewarding career. Coach Mills has cited two instances during the 2017 ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys & Girls Athletics Championships where a male and a female athlete were asked to compete wearing tapes, which are clear indicators that something is amiss in the area where they appear. He appeared disturbed as he deemed the two individuals to be crucial cogs in the wheel of the sport looking forward. These are the words of Foster’s Fairplay, but the tracks were carefully laid by the man who also has conditioning responsibility for the joint second- fastest sprinter ever, Yohan Blake. If Mills is to be taken seriously and given his expertise and experience, he should, this is worrisome in the extreme. But then, the creator of the once productive Camperdown High School Sprint Factory and co-founder of the Racers Track Club, is merely the Meet Director at Champs. He is not blessed with the power or the professional qualifications to compel a coach to withdraw an athlete under these suspected circumstances. Any such attempt could lead to unwelcome repercussions and thoughts of interference into areas thought to be the sole purview of school management, which in many cases means an all-powerful coach. It should be accepted by the organisers and indeed all involved in the staging of the world renowned event, including sponsors, that the future of these youngsters is of paramount importance. They need to be protected from over exuberant coaches who see that shiny medal as well as the points attached, as the main or perhaps, only target of their admittedly hard work and sacrifice. To answer to coach Mills’ obvious concern, there should be a body of suitably accredited personnel, empowered to identify instances where athletes are put into competition carrying those injuries or trauma that are likely to hamper their future progress. As copious as the talent is, it is not proper, in the opinion of this columnist, to ignore its nurture simply because, there is more waiting in the wings. The powers that be cannot give credence to any belief that has such a fallacy at its core. It needs to be emphasised that it is not acceptable to vest what ought to be a medically guided decision in persons not so qualified, and, with that in mind, a viable solution to the problems expressed should be sought. The Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association ruled just prior to the start of the season against, what in their opinion, was the overuse of athletes. The restrictions they instituted were hotly contested in certain areas. The results of their action might not be with us for years to come. Regardless, they must rule again in the further interest of our young athletes, nothing less. No entity should be seen to kill their aspirations or those of their families, who are simply waiting in line for a better day. Least of all, those under whose umbrella of care they fall.

The United States Agency for International Development and Food and Enterprise Development (USAID-FED) in collaboration with the Government of Liberia yesterday inaugurated a multipurpose soil science laboratory at Grand Bassa Community College in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County.Anthony Chan, USAID Mission Director, said the inauguration of the GBCC soil science laboratory is part of the United States Government Feed the Future Program which is aimed at supporting agriculture in the country.He asserted that FED has pursued three inter-related goals as it works to help improve the Liberian agricultural sector and has focused on helping rice and cassava farmers increase their yields and profitability. “It has also worked with Liberian entrepreneurs, particularly youth and women, to stimulate the growth of agricultural-related enterprises. FED has partnered with various government agencies, particularly the Ministry of Education, to help developLiberia’s agricultural workforce capacity,” he stated.The GBCC Science Laboratory is part of the National Diplomat in Agriculture (NDA), a 2-year market driven agricultural program, intended to prepare high school graduates for employment opportunities in Liberia’s agriculture sector.“The NDA program has been established in the four community colleges in Nimba, Lofa, Grand Bassa and BWI,” he said in his remarks.The USAID Mission Director said his government through the FED program is working to develop Liberia’s agriculture sector through several agricultural programs in the country.Mr. Chan encouraged the students and instructors to take advantage of the enriched learning and teaching opportunities provided by the Centers. “We look forward to seeing many successful entrepreneurs emerge from these Centers,” he urged.Agriculture Minister Dr.Moses Zinnah lauded the efforts of USAID-FED through its support to the country’s agricultural sector by empowering local farmers in the counties to promote agriculture in four value chains.He emphasized that without science laboratories it is very difficult for students to have vivid knowledge on agriculture.He pledged to work with partners who are in the country to provide maximum support to the sector to make sure that the country gets on the path to food security.He mentioned active engagement with local farmers in the various counties, working with the caucus engaging private sector involvement among others as his first steps to ensuring a vibrant agricultural sector.“Agriculture is in demand of skilled men and women in the country. In order to promote agriculture we will work with our farmers in the counties that are involved with farming activities to provide more training and empowerment to grow more food that will help improve food security,” he said.USAID-FED’s Chief of Party, Mrs. Agnes Luz, described the science lab as a multipurpose facility inaugurated to empower farmers through testing their soil before planting their crops.Mrs.Luz said promoting agriculture is the goal of USAID-FED and promised to continue working with farmers in the country to boost production in the four value chains including vegetables, cassava, rice and goats.“With this soil science lab, GBCC agriculture students will practically learn the testing of soil, animal and plant samples,” Madam Luz assured.Madam Luz meanwhile clarified that the lab is not only for GBCC agriculture students but will also be used by farmers in the community to test and know the best soil that would yield the desired produce.The GBCC Soil Science Lab is the second that USAID FED is supporting to improve food sufficiency in Liberia since millions of dollars are spent on the importation of food, especially rice, Liberia’s staple food.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Whether they want a tofu diet for Tigger or a neck massage for Muffin, pet owners looking for nontraditional animal care are finding it with local veterinarians, animal experts and even those who also practice medicine on people. At Seco Canyon Animal Clinic, animals can get anything from homeopathic remedies to traditional pet care. Veterinarian Evelyn Vega, who owns the Saugus facility, learned about alternative pet care after graduating from Purdue University. Vega was making house calls with another veterinarian in the San Fernando Valley at the time she was building a client base and was surprised to learn how many clients wanted acupuncture for their pets. So she began taking acupuncture classes and then learned about other therapies for animals, from herbs to massage therapy. She offers these services to clients, many of whom don’t use alternative medicine themselves but are open to new therapies for their animals. “It’s a different thinking than Western medicine,” Vega said. “You have to think Western but think how they would make a diagnosis in Eastern terms.” Using between four and 14 needles per acupuncture session, Vega said there’s no way to know how an animal will react. She doesn’t use sedatives on them, but instead gives massages, which usually relax the animals. Many get the therapy to speed recovery from injuries or ease back pain. Most of her clients are dogs. In some cases, acupuncture is used to stimulate appetite and is activated by a point at the tip of the nose. So when a mean cat with an aversion to eating came in, Vega had to get the fine needle in its nose. In the end, the feline consented. Chiropractor James Langford of Van Nuys treats dogs and cats with sore necks, jaw problems, bad backs and other alignment issues. Because cats stretch so much, they usually need fewer treatments than Fido, and can be on the mend in two to three weeks. But dogs need more time to heal. Langford sees his canine patients once a week for about a month. Sometimes longer. “It all depends on the situation,” he said. !dtpo st!Sue Doyle,(661) 257-5254sue.doyle@dailynew s.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Splash, the 13-year-old Dalmatian, has a condition that behaves like arthritis of the spine. And her owner, Terry Jones, is trying alternative medicines on her pooch to relieve the pain. “There are times that she stands still for one half-hour all hunched over because she can’t move,” Jones said. Eastern medicine, with its organic approach to healing, has challenged the Western way of practicing medicine in doctor’s offices for years. Now it’s reaching out to animal care.
Six fishermen were rescued off the coast of Inishowen last night when their boat began taking on water.The RNLI responded to the call off Inishowen.The crew were on board a commercial crabbing vessel two miles off Dunree when the water began to come on board at about 3.15am.The crew made an emergency call and two lifeboats from the RNLI based in Buncrana and the rescue helicopter 118 from Sligo rushed to the scene. Three members of the RNLI boarded the vessel and using a salvage pump, they managed to get the water from the boat and began to tow the vessel.All the fishermen were wearing lifejackets and had the liferaft ready to be deployed.A spokesman for the RNLI said there were no injuries.Once the boat was stabilised, the lifeboat escorted the vessel safely back to shore at Rathmullan where it arrived at seven o’clock this morning. Following the four hour operation, Mark Barnett, Lough Swilly RNLI Coxswain said: ‘The six fishermen deserve to be commended for their quick actions in the early hours of this morning. They called for help once they got into difficultly and had their life raft ready if needed in an emergency. The boat had taken on a considerable amount of water but thankfully our crew was able to assist and avoid the vessel from sinking and assist the men safely back to shore.’ SIX CREW RESCUED FROM STRICKEN VESSEL OFF COAST OF DONEGAL was last modified: September 8th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDunreehelicopterInishowenrescueRNLI
